is it's less than two weeks until the new year, the president's about to leave for hawaii in less than 15 minutes he leaves the white house, soledad. and congress is going to be gone for christmas too. and there is no more effective motivator for capitol hill than pressure and they have it right now. what the president has done today is he's laid out a scaled-down version of a fiscal cliff deal. you know, keeping tax cuts in place for 98% of americans, extending unemployment insurance, and laying out a plan, a down payment on a promise to do entitlement reform. and then he also made a pitch to the american people to only blame republicans frls no deal. so it's a two-pronged attack that he makes right before taking off on vacation. so right now, you know, the plan is basically to keep the pressure on. and we know both sides are planning to come back at some point after christmas and try to get something worked out. but no overt optimism coming really from the aides on either side right now. and we'll see, soledad. i'll tell you, folks right now are planning to make new year's eve plans
the conclusion. the president's plane won't take off for hawaii probably until saturday afternoon at 3:00. there'll be the pearls if you will tied to the railroad tracks. and in the end they'll get a deal this saturday. because it looks like arithmetic at this point. it'll be $500,000 a year. how do you see it? you're a games person. you know how they're looking at this thing. >> you know, i'm not sure. we usually agree, chris. i'm not sure we see it the same way. john boehner appears to be going off his own personal political cliff. what he is doing if you just look back at the last few days, clearly it seems he and the president were dealing with each other in relatively good faith. they were compromising. they were both giving up things that were making their base unhappy. and then boehner goes to plan "b" and says they're going to vote on plan "b." now he's sticking to the plan "b" yesterday, except it sounds -- last thing i heard when i went in here is he's going to attack spending cuts. because he doesn't control his caucus, chris. he's getting such major blowback from his far right wing n

for the holidays, the president has gone to hawaii on vacation. white house correspondent brianna keilar tells us no one is really talking, anyone, to get this solved. at least not here at christmas. >> reporter: senate democrats are not in conversations right now with senate republicans or with house republicans. and this is problematic obviously because in order to avoid the fiscal cliff, you would need to find some sort of deal that would make it through the senate and the house and that would mean democratic and republican support. right now, all eyes on the senate because they will reconvene on the 27th that is thursday. and senate majority leader harry reid, it is up to him really to cobble together something that can get some of that support. right now the white house is still supporting a threshold of $250,000 back to their initial starting point for tax rates going up for those making more than that. but you can imagine, hala, that will be very hard for some republicans, maybe even some democrats to sign on to. >> right, and, you know, for just about a week ago, it was common to hear, oh
